Bowling Green High School's Class of 1960 is getting thanks from city officials for its support of a memorial area at the former Bowling Green High School/Junior High building and an area at Simpson Garden Park.
Mayor Richard Edwards singled the class out for credit recently after at-large council member Sandy Rowland said she was happy to see something being done to mark the former school site.
The class has covered the cost of a bronze plaque that has been installed at Church and Wooster streets and for a pair of benches that have been ordered.
Assistant Municipal Administrator Lori Tretter said the city is open to other donations that might be used for additional items in the area.
The city received the property in a swap with the city schools with a long-term plan of building a new city building on the site.
The building was demolished last summer, as was the former Central Administration Building in the adjacent 100 block of South Grove Street.
Several trees been planted on the perimeter of the school site.
